I began running in high school but it wasn’t until moving to Grand Rapids and seeing publicity for the Riverbank and Gazelle Girl races that I decided to train for a race, beginning the with 25K 6 years ago. The two races have become a tradition for me- I love that the community comes together for both events. I found my running family in RunGR and have trained for and completed many events amongst a strong group of ladies. Being a pacer would allow me to be an ambassador for running and especially for the strength that comes from running within a community of supportive athletes! Together we can do anything!
